Normally I'd say something along the lines of not believing that it's a new month already, but I'm actually sat here thinking that January seemed to be running in slow motion LOL! Maybe it's a winter thing, but nevertheless it's a new month which means we have some sneaky peeks of the new Clearly Besotted release to tease you with. Yay! :)
The February release is nothing short of fabulous and adorable in equal measures. I've had such a blast stamping with the new sets and I can guarantee that you're in for real treat. Today's card uses the beautiful 'You Are Wonderful' stamp set which features springtime blooms and beautiful sentiments in a stunning font. I've said it before, but it's worth saying again: No-one designs floral stamp sets quite like CB!
- The vase is a separate stamp. I created a mask of it, placed it on the stamped vase and sponged Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink along the bottom to subtly ground it.
- I'm going to admit that it did pain my perfectionist ways to mount the focal point at an angle, but the two strips of patterned paper help to balance (and straighten!) it a little.
- Those little strips of patterned paper are actually strips of contrasting patterns along the top of each 6x6" sheet of patterned paper. They're worth holding onto and cutting up to create fun finishing touches. I like that the 'XO' pattern echoes the sentiment too – bonus!
Well, that's all from me today, but if you haven't already popped over here from Stephanie's (aka: CB HQ) then hop across there now to see more fabulous sneak peeks from the rest of the Design Team including this month's guestie, my talented friend, Keren Baker! :)
As always thanks so much for visiting today. I hope you can join me for more sneak peeks tomorrow!
